Drew Barrymore can work a red carpet with the best of them, but in her off hours, she鈥檚 all about comfort 鈥 and not just when it comes to fashion. The Santa Clarita Diet actress is part of a new Crocs campaign that聽focuses on feeling comfortable with who you are 鈥 quirks, imperfections, and all. It鈥檚 a lesson聽she hopes to聽pass on to her daughters, Olive and Frankie. Ahead,聽the Flower Beauty founder shares the secret to her own confidence, her summer style rules, and her hair and makeup tips and tricks.

Brit + Co: The聽theme of this Crocs campaign is, 鈥淐ome as you are.鈥 What does that mean to you?

Drew Barrymore: I love it. I don鈥檛 really know what people think about me, and lord knows I would rather not. But I do feel like I live by that. I know 鈥渁uthentic鈥 is such an overly used word, like organic, but if you saw 鈥渃ome as you are鈥澛燼nd it was associated with someone who seemed a bit prim, proper, and kind of concerned with maintaining a certain image, I don鈥檛 know if I鈥檇 buy it as much as with a goofball like me who just tries to do their best. I鈥檓 definitely not the vision of being anything but myself.

B+C: In the聽mini musical you filmed for Crocs, you sing about embracing imperfection and just being confident in who you are. What makes you feel confident?聽

DB:聽I think when I know I鈥檓 behaving the way I want to behave. When I don鈥檛 stress out about my reaction about something and I鈥檓 not sort of questioning what I thought, said, or did, and I know I was calm and pleasant to be around and relaxed. Then I鈥檓 like, okay, that鈥檚 good, I feel good about that.

B+C: What do you want to teach your daughters about confidence and self-love?

DB: I have done my best to accept the way I am and work around it. So I think I鈥檒l be really big on trying to always advocate to them how important it is to not fight what you have but embrace what you have. And just how to have the most healthy approach to yourself聽that you possibly can. I can鈥檛 really believe in that more. Appreciating what you have rather than fighting it is just so crucial.

B+C: That鈥檚 kind of in line with the whole idea of being 鈥渃omfortable in your own shoes.鈥 Have you always been comfortable in your own shoes, so to speak?

DB:聽Well, I was, until I had two kids and my feet grew three sizes. It鈥檚 a little more challenging for me, but I will say Crocs technology has completely changed my life. I think my favorite part is getting to be in the driver鈥檚 seat and design around that technology and bring a fun aesthetic that speaks to me into the brand. I鈥檓 wearing the Isabellas right now, and they鈥檙e just so comfortable and so flattering on the foot. I have short legs, so I鈥檓 constantly thinking about how to not cut off the foot imprint or the top of the foot cleavage or the ankle. I鈥檓 just so thrilled with these shoes. And they鈥檙e so good for summer!

B+C: Besides Crocs, do you have a summer uniform or a go-to summer outfit?

DB:聽I鈥檓 just not a huge sleeveless person. And I look so awful in shorts. So I鈥檓 really about, like, the lightest-weight fabric in little short-sleeve button-downs and tea-length skirts. That鈥檚 really how I like to dress for summer. Or really lightweight vintage-y army pants and a t-shirt with some accessories.

B+C: What about a summer beauty routine?

DB:聽I鈥檓 all about my [Flower Beauty] highlighting primer. It鈥檚 the pink one. We have a green and a blue one too 鈥 the blue is hydrating and the green is for red pigment.聽The pink聽has this illumination underneath that goes so well under sunblock or with no makeup. And it just gives you this gorgeous dewy glow that I鈥檓 obsessed with.

B+C: Do you have any聽easy hair tricks?

DB: I am all about hair masks, because my hair just gets so dried out. I love the J.F. Lazartigue shea butter mask 鈥 I鈥檒l put that on my hair, put it in braids, and not take it out until the next day. And some Olaplex by the pool for 20 minutes is awesome. One is conditioning and one is bond-rebuilding, so they totally do completely different things.聽My hair just kind of 鈥 you get older, and you bleach it, and it just doesn鈥檛 bounce back the same way. So I鈥檝e had to be so careful of it, and it didn鈥檛 use to be that way. My hair could take anything. And all of a sudden, one day, it鈥檚 not like that anymore. So I鈥檝e been all about how to maintain healthy hair. That鈥檚 my jam right now.
